    Will do. Ran through a couple of 3S packs on smooth asphalt on Friday (the only break in the rain here in Santa Cruz that aligned with some free time) and it runs extremely well. Stable. Fast....

    Four and a half years later, it's finally running on the road. Handles amazing. I'll have to share some video.

    Sorry buddy - I checked out the wheels, no manufacturer marks at all. They came with a TRCE chassis roller I bought so they're a mystery.

    Back from the depths! The last pics in this thread are as far as I've got. That said, progress was made today. I felt guilty for this shelf queen just sitting there. Just equaled out the ride height...

    Yeah - it's all parted together from scratch. I have a stock Slash Platinum LCG for reference, so it's pretty straightforward. I didn't keep track of all the piece by piece pricing, but I'd guess I...

    Sverige, love this project. Any chance you might put together a single sheet schematic for this? I can solder like a champ, but have zero EE skills. I am gonna start a new scale body project soon and...

    Dgoll75, really glad you found this thread. Your Rothman's treatment was what inspired me. Thanks for that and for the compliment. Looking at your signature on Ultimate, it looks like you still have...

    Sure thing. In the past I've set up three 1:1 cars for track use (944 turbo, 240z, pantera) with suspension that kinda resembles what I have going on with the TRCE, stiff, low, minimal travel, heavy...

    Probably not... It's set as low as possible to see how low it can go. For shelf queen display, that's fine, for a groomed asphalt track it might be okay too, but for real roads, not likely. The...

    Nice! This would be a tough one to replicate in scale. But sweet.

    Thanks DP. This deltaplastik 934 body is a great starting point. It supports scale details well. Luckily, there's no shortage of resource images online to create the head, tail and marker light...

    Thanks guys!

    Next project is a Slash 4x4 with a proline 66 Ford F150 in turquoise and cream, a prezzie for Mrs. Cooper.
  14. Thanks! This is my fourth body, it's come out...

    Thanks! This is my fourth body, it's come out best by a mile, but I still have stuff to learn. I used to build lots of intricately detailed 1/12th - 1/43rd static models, and that's a lot more...

    Me too. :)

    Still have a little clean-up here and there. Taping and waiting a week before shooting color isn't what I'd want to do next time. Thinner photo stock too. All and all, I'm pleased with...

    It was paint day. And man it looks sweet. Pictures Monday.

    Cheers!

    Thanks!

    It's been a busy week work wise, and just wrapped a lovely MTB ride with Mrs. thinkcooper. I think tomorrow is paint day. Hope...

    That's been my technique as well, especially for this body's paint scheme. There are two large stripes on the front hood, rear deck and wing, each flanked with a small pin stripe on the side, and...

    I saw that image and was like Wow :eek: , then I was all like Wow :thumbup:, but then I said Wow. :unsure:. It looks like you've got your tape joints well burnished down, but I found on my 934 that...

    Thanks man! I spent some time yesterday shooting black trim on the bumper, sides and surrounds for the lens graphics. Started taping the window trim as well - that's gonna be a bear. Yikes! The...
